Gary Shirley Retains Primary Physical Custody Of Leah; Amber Portwood To Pay Child Support

Let’s hope Amber Portwood is a lot better at paying child support than her fiance Matt Baier, because her ex Gary Shirley was awarded primary physical custody of their 7-year-old daughter BooBoo Leah!

The Teen Mom OG stars have been battling out a custody agreement for years, and recently Amber claimed they were in a good place and agreed upon joint custody. Or not!

Amber initially lost custody of Leah when she went to prison in 2011, but after her release and upon getting clean and sober, Amber and Gary have been in and out of court as their child support battle waged on with both seeking primary physical custody.  

TMZ reports that Amber found herself on the losing end of this fight and the Indiana courts determined that Gary would retain primary physical custody so Amber is required to pay him $1,200 per month in child support. Considering how much these Teen Mom stars earn, I’d say Amber got pretty lucky. 

Amber certainly is dealing with the courts a lot lately … and none of it good news!

Apparently both Gary and Amber are at peace with the decision, and claim they are ready to put the drama behind them to “properly co-parent” Leah from the couch
